10 years ago, this was my daily mantra. Panic attack had no mercy on me, hitting me out of the blue, several times a week, and all I could think about was; what a dreadful way to die!

I know, it sounds really dramatic, but it was truly how I felt, so you can imagine my level of desperation, I would’ve tried anything to make it go away. One winter night as I was juggling to find a solution that could pull me out of my misery, I decided to take myself out for a stroll on the shores of the Persian Gulf, in the futuristic city of Dubai, where I was living at the time. The winter night market was in full swing and trust me I’d zero interest in buying anything, but suddenly I came across this tiny booth, owned by this tiny lady, selling all sorts of tiny things. There it was, a giant sign flashing at me ” BREATHE”!

It was obviously calling my name! I went closer and realized she’s selling herbal pillows and essential oils. So off course I picked up the one that said “BREATHE” which came with a bottle of Peppermint oil, and took it home for a test drive.

Guess what happened next? Life was never the same, as soon as I’d feel the panic coming, few drops of Peppermint oil on the pillow and my nose deep into it. My breathing would go back to normal in a minute, I kid you not, it was a miracle!

Now you’ve asked me many times, why I work with essential oils? Why I want you to get your oils and use them over and over? Why doTERRA? Why I so wholeheartedly want to get them into every single household? The answer is simple my friend, because it CHANGED my life, with a capital C, and I know it can change yours too!

So here’s to the tiny lady and her tiny booth, the green pillow, my beloved Peppermint oil and that life changing night on the shores of the Persian gulf.
